Liberty Mutual Launches New Distribution Model  

​To improve broker access to the full suite of Liberty Mutual’s commercial and specialty insurance products, Liberty has announced a new distribution model for the U.S.

“We’ve organized the country into six geographic regions, each of which will be managed by a regional executive,” explains Shaun Kelly, President Global Risk Solutions Distribution.  “Each region will have a number of branch executives who will oversee broker relationships on a local level.  This structure provides distribution partners access to the full capability of Liberty and Ironshore more easily, and will create new opportunities for us to work together in a multiline, collaborative way.”

The new regional executives are:

  • Ron Gleason, South Central Regional Executive

  • Chris Johnston, Midwest Regional Executive

  • Amy Lochhead, Southeast Regional Executive

  • David Russo, Mid Atlantic Regional Executive

  • Bob Thomas, Northeast Regional Executive

  • Adam Witten, Western Regional Executive 

In addition to the regional executives, Liberty Mutual has appointed Ben Johnson as Wholesale Distribution Executive. Johnson will focus on optimizing relationships with wholesale distribution partners across North America.
